The Era Of Chimeras: Scientists Fearlessly Create Bizarre Human/Animal Hybrids

Human/Animal HybridsDid you know that scientists are creating cow/human hybrids, pig/human hybrids and even mouse/human hybrids?  This is happening every single day in labs all over the western world, but most people have never even heard about it.  So would you drink milk from a cow/human hybrid that produces milk that is almost identical to human breast milk?  And how would you interact with a mouse that has a brain that is almost entirely human?  These are the kinds of questions that we will have to start to address as a society as scientists create increasingly bizarre human/animal hybrids.  Thanks to dramatic advances in genetic technology, we have gotten to the point where it is literally possible for college students to create new hybrid lifeforms in their basements.   Of course our laws have not kept pace with these advances, and now that Pandora’s Box has been opened, it is going to be nearly impossible to shut it.


Scientists try to justify the creation of human/animal hybrids by telling us that it will help “cure disease” and help “end world hunger”, but what if scientists discover that combining human DNA with animal DNA can give us incredible new abilities or greatly extended lifespans?  Will humanity really have the restraint to keep from going down that road?

In my previous article entitled “Transhumanists: Superhuman Powers And Life Extension Technologies Will Allow Us To Become Like God“, I explored the obsession that transhumanists have with human enhancement.  The temptation to “take control of our own evolution” will surely be too great for many scientists to resist.  And even if some nations outlaw the complete merging of humans and animals, that does not mean that everyone else in the world will.

And once animal DNA gets into our breeding pool, how will we ever put the genie back into the bottle?  As the DNA of the human race becomes corrupted, it is easy to imagine a future where there are very few “pure humans” remaining.

Sadly, most of the scientists working in this field express very little concern for these types of considerations.  In fact, one very prominent U.S. geneticist says that we should not even worry about hybridization because he believes that humans were originally pig/chimpanzee hybrids anyway…

The human species began as the hybrid offspring of a male pig and a female chimpanzee, an American geneticist has suggested.

The startling claim has been made by Eugene McCarthy, who is also one of the world’s leading authorities on hybridisation in animals.

He points out that while humans have many features in common with chimps, we also have a large number of distinguishing characteristics not found in any other primates.

So if we are just hybrid creatures ourselves, why should we be scared of making more hybrids?

From their point of view, it all makes perfect sense.

And right now, extremely weird human/animal hybrids are being grown all over the United States.

For example, just check out the following excerpt from an NBC News article about what is going on in Nevada…

On a farm about six miles outside this gambling town, Jason Chamberlain looks over a flock of about 50 smelly sheep, many of them possessing partially human livers, hearts, brains and other organs.

The University of Nevada-Reno researcher talks matter-of-factly about his plans to euthanize one of the pregnant sheep in a nearby lab. He can’t wait to examine the effects of the human cells he had injected into the fetus’ brain about two months ago.

“It’s mice on a large scale,” Chamberlain says with a shrug.

When this article came across my desk recently, I noted that it was almost ten years old.

Over the past decade, things have gotten much, much stranger.

For example, scientists have now created mice that have artificial human chromosomes “in every cell in their bodies“…

Scientists have created genetically-engineered mice with artificial human chromosomes in every cell of their bodies, as part of a series of studies showing that it may be possible to treat genetic diseases with a radically new form of gene therapy.

In one of the unpublished studies, researchers made a human artificial chromosome in the laboratory from chemical building blocks rather than chipping away at an existing human chromosome, indicating the increasingly powerful technology behind the new field of synthetic biology.

And researchers at the University of Wisconsin figured out a way to transfer cells from human embryos into the brains of mice.  When those cells from the human embryos began to grow and develop, they actually made the mice substantially smarter

Yet experiments like these are going forward just the same. In just the past few months, scientists at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Rochester have published data on their human-animal neural chimeras. For the Wisconsin study, researchers injected mice with an immunotoxin to destroy a part of their brains–the hippocampus–that’s associated with learning, memory, and spatial reasoning. Then the researchers replaced those damaged cells with cells derived from human embryos. The cells proliferated and the lab chimeras recovered their ability to navigate a water maze.

For the Rochester study, researchers implanted newborn mice with nascent human glial cells, which help support and nourish neurons in the brain. Six months later, the human parts had elbowed out the mouse equivalents, and the animals had enhanced ability to solve a simple maze and learn conditioned cues. These protocols might run afoul of the anti-hybrid laws, and perhaps they should arouse some questions. These chimeric mice may not be human, or even really human, but they’re certainly one step further down the path to Algernon. It may not be so long before we’re faced with some hairy bioethics: What rights should we assign to mice with human brains?

So what should we call mice that have brains that are mostly human?

And at what point would our relationship with such creatures fundamentally change?

When they learn to talk?

Scientists all over the planet are recklessly creating these chimeras without really thinking through the implications.

In China, scientists have actually inserted human genes into the DNA of dairy cow embryos.

Now there are hundreds of human/cow hybrids that produce milk that is virtually identical to human breast milk.

Would you buy such milk if it showed up in your supermarket?  The scientists that “designed” these cows say that is the goal.

But of course this is just the tip of the iceberg.  A very good Slate article detailed some more of the human/animal hybrid experiments that have been taking place all over the planet…

Not long ago, Chinese scientists embedded genes for human milk proteins into a mouse’s genome and have since created herds of humanized-milk-producing goats. Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Michigan have a method for putting a human anal sphincter into a mouse as a means of finding better treatments for fecal incontinence, and doctors are building animals with humanized immune systems to serve as subjects for new HIV vaccines.

And Discovery News has documented even more bizarre human/animal hybrids that scientists have developed…

Rabbit Eggs with Human Cells

Pigs with Human Blood

Sheep with Human Livers

Cow Eggs with Human Cells

Cat-Human Hybrid Proteins

As technology continues to advance, the possibilities are going to be endless.

One professor at Harvard even wants to create a Neanderthal/human hybrid.  He says that he just needs an “adventurous female human” to carry the child…

Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago.

His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs were created in a laboratory, Professor Church’s ambitious plan requires a human volunteer.

He said his analysis of Neanderthal genetic code using samples from bones is complete enough to reconstruct their DNA.

He said: ‘Now I need an adventurous female human.

‘It depends on a hell of a lot of things, but I think it can be done.’

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a really, really bad idea to me.

And right now, the U.S. federal government is actually considering a plan which would allow scientists to create babies that come from genetic material drawn from three parents

A new technology aimed at eliminating genetic disease in newborns would combine the DNA of three people, instead of just two, to create a child, potentially redrawing ethical lines for designer babies.

The process works by replacing potentially variant DNA in the unfertilized eggs of a hopeful mother with disease-free genes from a donor. U.S. regulators today will begin weighing whether the procedure, used only in monkeys so far, is safe enough to be tested in humans.

Because the process would change only a small, specific part of genetic code, scientists say a baby would largely retain the physical characteristics of the parents. Still, DNA from all three — mother, father and donor — would remain with the child throughout a lifetime, opening questions about long-term effects for this generation, and potentially the next. Ethicists worry that allowing pre-birth gene manipulation may one day lead to build-to-order designer babies.

Many scientists believe that these kinds of technologies will “change the world”.

They might be more right about that than they ever could possibly imagine.

When we start monkeying with human DNA, we could be opening up doorways that we never even knew existed.

If we do not learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.  Hopefully scientists around the globe will understand the dangers of these types of experiments before it is too late.

    The scientist I have come across in my lifetime, all seem to share similar characteristics. Brilliant in their area of expertise. Barely functional outside of it. They ask the first question, can we do it. They never ask the second question, should we do it

    • K2

      How many scientists did you come across?

      • RalphEllison

        Probably not many.

      • frederick muhlbauer

        İ know of 2 examples in my life that confirm exactly what “K” is saying hes correct

    • Cynical Guy 42

      A question I think should be asked is, how well do we understand genetics? If we don’t understand genetics well enough, we might end up with something we didn’t intend. What if it’s a disaster?

  • DJohn1

    Nothing is impossible to us. And in a simple statement, that is something to fear. The polution of our genetic structure was one of the reasons for the elimination of the human race in the Great Flood of Noah’s time. I suspect it was cause for the elimination of Atlantis in prehistory. We know almost nothing about the technology of that time.
    This direction lies madness. If anything would cause a similar event to come about, it is the manipulation of animal and human genes together.
    Egypt tried it. Those cattle you see on farms today are bred from domestic animals that came out of Egyptian breeding programs. Only they did not cross the line. They did it by breeding out characteristics that they did not want from wild animals.
    Most of our pets and domestic animals originated from this agricultural breeding. I suspect they bred their leaders in the same manner as they did their domestic farm animals.
    There is a trick to breeding in all mammals. The trick is to eliminate anything that isn’t what you want while breeding. It is done basically by inbreeding stock. You take the brother of one animal and breed it to daughter of someone from the same family line. Two thirds of the stock is defective and must be put down. The other third will have dominate genes that can be turned into different breeds of animal. I believe that is how the Pharoahs were born.
    This can take many generations. I suspect a similar breeding program was done from Joseph’s line in the Bible. Why? Because servants are valuable merchandise in ancient times. Yet something caused the Egyptians to destroy an entire generation of Jews. We are talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise in Egyptian culture of people that were slaves. Why did they kill them? It was predicted by their equivalent of scientists that a potential superhuman would be born and it made them very frightened. They attempted to wipe out the mistake only they missed one.
    There is really nothing new under the Sun.

    • K2

      Unless the bible specifically says, that the pollution of our genetic structure was one of the reasons, dont believe that was the reason.

      • DJohn1

        There is too much in the Bible for a comment here. I find Genesis and the book of Job to be fascinating. The revealing of a court of God with many different intelligent beings holding a Royal Court to be fascinating material. We are looking at the inner workings of the Universe in this description.

        The Devil was in that court! (Before the fall?)

        The only hint of what I think happened is in Genesis. Daughters of men and Sons of God? Many men of reknown?
        Our view of things by necessity has changed with technology and the larger view that technology has presented. Not all of it being true or good.
        Our ancient buildings in Egypt and elsewhere are riddled with mutant creatures that are half man/half something else.
        Most of it from before the flood.
        Legends tend to be retold versions of history.
        The minotaur and maze is one example of this. Just exactly what would that half cow/half human have been and was it fact or fiction?

        Troy at one point was considered a myth.

        The tech we have today implies a Universe so large, that no person can even conceive how big it is. The technology of the people that wrote the Bible under God’s direction had no clue that things were so complicated both in how big the Universe is or how far down the microscopic scale things can get.

        Every play telephone? That book is remarkable in that it is the same today as it was thousands of years ago. When it is translated something is lost. It is a limit of the trade language/hybrid Eglish that many meanings are attributed to even one word. I find it amazing how much has filtered through the translations.

        • K2

          Does the bible say or imply this was one the reasons?

          • DJohn1

            Yes. I could not begin to tell you exactly where. I have been through the Bible cover to cover in both the NIV, International, and the King James Version. That was in my teens and I am 71 now. Sometimes the Bible is vague and I have to think someone has censored it. There are verses found in the Dead Sea Scrolls missing from the modern version. But those are very rare differences.

            The most obvious verse is the one in Genesis. Refering of course to the mixing of species.
            The Sons of God being the fallen angels. Those fallen angels in other books outside the Bible refer to people with six digits instead of five on their hands and it was a dominate feature passed on to their hybrid children. That is outside the bible.

            There is a reference somewhere to Noah’s Father seeing that Noah was perfect, thinking he was one of the hybrids, wanting to kill the baby and put the mother down for adultry. An Angel appeared to him telling him that was not the case.
            But that might be Enoch. I do know that Noah’s perfection comes up several times in different books. I would defer to experts in this. I am not an expert. One of the older ministers that have studied this might correct me on this.

    • K2

      I mean dont take somebody else’s word for it. Read the bible for yourself and try to understand what the bible says.

    Us are not trying to be like god. It is the “chosen” race of jews! These sinister Dr. Frankensteins have been in existence for milennia. Those researchers with no conscience are jews. Most all doctors are jews and they do some terrible things to humans under the guise of “helping and healing” them. Lies, lies, lies. Your get all your money taken, your dignity gone and your suffering courtesy of this tribe.

    I know most of you won’t be around to see what the FATHER does to clean up this mess,HES going to burn america to the ground for this being allowed to happen and a bunch of other reasons,BUT he does a great job of cleaning everything up,AND THEN restores the planet,JUST like it was in the begining,WHEN I looked at the OCEAN water,I couldn’t believe how clear it was,Even in a hundred feet deep,the bottom looked like it was only a couple of feet deep,it was that clear,OFF THE COAST OF COLORADO……………….

    It will be these “manimal” hybrids that will give rise to the demons foretold in the Bible. What book was that? I think it was Revelation.

    • FirstGarden

      We already had the Nephilim. (Genesis 6)
      Why not manimals?

      The consummation of the ages is very near.

    • Diana

      Their basic reference is to the material substance of which earthly creatures are made. This is true of humans ( Gen 2:21 ; Lev 13:10-11 ; Ezek 37:6 ; Dan 1:15 ; Micah 3:3 ) and animals alike ( Exod 21:28 ), including animal flesh used for food ( Gen 9:2-4 ) and in sacrifice ( 1 Sam 2:13 ; Isa 65:4 ; Hosea 8:13 ).

      Extended Senses. What one individual is all kindred individuals will be. Flesh thus comes to denote blood-relationship ( Gen 2:23-24 ; Lev 18:6 ), and beyond that, kinship to all humans, “all flesh” ( Psalm 65:2 ; Isa 40:5 ; 49:26 ). Yet another extension of significance is the use of flesh in reference to the human body as a whole ( Lev 13:13 ; 16:4 ; 2 Kings 6:30 ). While in such uses it can denote a corpse ( 1 Sam 17:44 ; 2 Kings 9:36 ), it more commonly denotes the whole life of the individual viewed from an external perspective so that safety of the flesh is life ( Psalm 16:9 ; Prov 4:20-22 ) and its endangerment a threat to life ( Job 13:14 ; Prov 5:11 ).

  • Alleged Comment

    I have always said that the Bible used a curious word to describe the end of ALL LIFE on this planet.

    It used the word “flesh”. No one has been able to explain it why it used this curious term instead of humans, or souls, etc. Not even my church ministers know the answer.

    I think this DNA might be part of the picture. Our DNA becomes corrupted because we are intermingling with anything that has flesh, from worms and insects up to gorillas?

    Could God have made a self-destructing mechanism once DNA gets altered a certain way? Or is it because our DNA will become inevitably corrupt and that is when God will do this?

    Matt 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

    • Gina Pocan

      Interesting idea

  • Diana

    “like God” my foot. The fact that chimpanzees and humans have similar DNA does not make them evolutionary relatives. Humans did not evolve in a series of random accidents from an apelike ancestor—they were created in the image of God. The Bible makes a clear distinction between man and the animals. Man is given the ability to fellowship with God and given dominion over the animals. Evolutionary ideas about the rise of man from apes has fueled racist attitudes and set the stage for such atrocities as the Holocaust. Humans were specially created by God and are not simply highly evolved primates.

          • Diana

            They’ve already paid, Frederick. God made Israel His wife; the apple of His eye; His special people. Geeez, the entirety of Israel isn’t even as big as New Jersey and your complaining about the standoff for survival against every other nation on the globe?

      yes, and we used to believe the Earth was the center of the universe

  • Cynical Guy 42

    This reminds me of Spider-Man, how hybridizing humans and animals created a disaster for everybody. Except for spider-man. The claim that humanity is a cross between pigs and chimpanzees is strange. I did not think pigs and chimpanzees were capable of producing fertile offspring.

    These poor people are totaly blind to how angry will God be because of this….

  • PostMe

    Much like mules I would doubt these hybrids will be able to naturally reproduce or may lose the capability after a few generations.

    even Black People from Africa? wow.

    • DJohn1

      The trouble with technology is it gets out of control really fast. For instance, all those bigots in the South, proclaiming their White heritage. Meaning in science terms, Mongoloid, Caucasion, or Negroid as the official classifications of race within our species. All of which are quite capable of reproduction with one another.
      But we now have the DNA code that can trace any human being’s ancestors. That means that all these whites with a mix in their racial code are now exposed as having said mix. I maintain there are no “pure” whites out there just as there are no “pure” blacks or orientals.

      If challenged as to their ancestor background a whole lot of people would be in trouble.

      Obvious racial characteristics are out there. The amount of color in one’s skin is an example. It has nothing to do with intelligence. It has nothing to do with the amount of education and culture. What we do have is characteristics of biology that tend to be in certain groups.
      Indians in the 1880s had a terrible vulnerability to alcohol. Their ancestors had little contact with alcohol until it was brought from Europe.
      Black people are prone to certain diseases.
      White people are prone to certain diseases.
      This is due mostly to the environment upon which each race began over many generations.

      I maintain that we are all created equal and the great shuffling of genetic material is what really determines what you have inside of you. A black man is just as likely to be genius level as either of the other races.

      We have a long history of cultural crap on anyone that appears different from anyone else. Anyone with a foreign origin with an accent and different clothing will tell you that.

      Given the same environmental learning from early childhood, members of all three recognized races are likely to score very similar in any test.
      The problem being cultural rather than physical. With the breaking of the genetic code, science can tell exactly who your fathers and mothers were racially. Now that might be a problem for small minded people.

    What up, Ned Flanders?

  • When I heard that scientists had revived the deadliest flu virus that killed millions in 1918 (including my grandmother which left my father an orphan) I thought to myself “What if it got out and killed millions again?”. Shouldn’t they (the scientist) be held accountable? And then, though, what possible punishment would be suitable for those responsible for millions of deaths? I couldn’t think of one.
